TECHNICAL FIELD

The present invention is related in general to a medical device to access the bone marrow and specifically to an apparatus and method for penetrating the bone marrow with a powered drill and inserting a penetrator or needle.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

Every year, millions of patients are treated for life-threatening emergencies in the United States. Such emergencies include shock, trauma, cardiac arrest, drug overdoses, diabetic ketoacidosis, arrhythmias, burns, and status epilepticus just to name a few. For example, according to the American Heart Association, more than 1,500,000 patients suffer from heart attacks (myocardial infarctions) every year, with over 500,000 of them dying from its devastating complications.

An essential element for treating all such emergencies is the rapid establishment of an intravenous (IV) line in order to administer drugs and fluids directly into the circulatory system. Whether in the ambulance by paramedics, or in the emergency room by emergency specialists, the goal is the same—to start an IV in order to administer life-saving drugs and fluids. To a large degree, the ability to successfully treat such critical emergencies is dependent on the skill and luck of the operator in accomplishing vascular access. While it is relatively easy to start an IV on some patients, doctors, nurses and paramedics often experience great difficulty establishing IV access in approximately 20 percent of patients. These patients are probed repeatedly with sharp needles in an attempt to solve this problem and may require an invasive procedure to finally establish an intravenous route.

A further complicating factor in achieving IV access occurs the “in the field” e.g. at the scene of an accident or during ambulance transport where it is difficult to see the target and excessive motion make accessing the venous system very difficult.

In the case of patients with chronic disease or the elderly, the availability of easily-accessible veins may be depleted. Other patients may have no available IV sites due to anatomical scarcity of peripheral veins, obesity, extreme dehydration or previous IV drug use. For these patients, finding a suitable site for administering lifesaving drugs becomes a monumental and frustrating task. While morbidity and mortality statistics are not generally available, it is known that many patients with life-threatening emergencies have died of ensuing complications because access to the vascular system with life-saving IV therapy was delayed or simply not possible. For such patients, an alternative approach is required.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

In accordance with teachings of the present invention, an apparatus and method for gaining rapid access to the bone marrow is provided.

In one embodiment of the invention an apparatus for penetrating a bone marrow is provided that includes a housing and a penetrator assembly.

Outer penetrator 84 is inserted into the bone marrow of an extremity. Right angle connector 132 is then used to connect intravenous tubing 130 to outer penetrator 84. Right angle connector has the advantage of allowing tubing to be connected to an outer penetrator or needle at an angle that will not kink or pinch off the lumen of the tubing. Other connectors or adapters may also be used to connect an outer penetrator to an intravenous tubing, another kind of tubing or to a syringe for use in providing medication or fluids to a person or for use in withdrawing a sample of blood from the bone marrow.

A method for providing access to the bone marrow includes using a powered drill, capable of reciprocal or rotational motion, to insert a penetrator assembly that includes an outer penetrator and an inner trocar into a hone marrow cavity. The powered drill is then released from the penetrator assembly and the inner trocar is grasped and removed from the outer penetrator. A connector present on the end of the outer penetrator, for example a luer lock connector, is then available for attachment to either an adapter, such as a right angle connector or directly to an intravenous tubing or syringe.

Although the present invention and its advantages have been described in detail, it should be understood that various changes, substitutions and alternations can be made herein without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as defined by the following claims.
